          How's everyone doing today?? Hopefully well. I am doing okay despite being so sick... I am home with bronchitis/sinus infection but staying on the diet. I actually got a prescription for NO SUGAR cough syrup.. they thought I was crazy.. They asked, "Are you a diabetic" I said, no, I just don't want extra sugar or high fructose corn syrup..
          It's hard because all I want is a huge bowl of home made chicken noodle soup (it's just not the same w/o the egg noodles)..... *sigh* 12 more days until cheat day!

          jkcz0702 - Big congrats on the adoption, that is SO exciting!! I agree an excellent reason to celebrate!!! Best of luck with your new son!

            finzup, last time i was on a low-carb diet i needed cough syrup ... they are totally loaded with sugar, so i asked the doc if the kind he was prescribing was sugar free. well he gave me all kinds of crap about it and basically ended up telling me i should just get gastric bypass surgery. needless to say, i was livid. if i'm going so far as to ask for sugar free cough medicine then clearly i am TRYING!!!

            haha whoops i just got mad about it all over again and hijacked the thread to rant ... sorry! what i *meant* to say was feel better soon! :)

              lol Lisa too funny!!!!!

              I forgot to tell you ladies a funny story that happened to us on cheat day. My FI has been eyeing this certain donut (blueberry blossom from Timmy's for all you canandians!!) for the whole 3 weeks of the priming phase. He's being getting his coffee each morning, going in there, seeing this donut and can't wait until cheat day so that he can try it. So it's friday night and we're heading out of town for the weekend and my mom casually says to the FI (she really likes to tease him) that she heard on the radio that day that friday was the last day to get that donut seeing as blueberry season is now over. He was so shocked and upset, but we couldn't help laughing at him. (the story my mom told wasn't true). Anyway, fast forward to the next day, our cheat day. We head to the local Timmy's (there is only one in this town because it's so small) at 6:30am and what do you know...they DON'T HAVE ANY blueberry blossom donuts!!!!! lol OMG the look on the FI's face. He says to the girl...I've been on this diet for the past 3 weeks and I really wanted one of these donuts. I was laughing so much. He looked soooooooooo sad!! He ended up getting something else instead, but wasn't happy about that. We told the story when we got back and my mom was laughing hysterically! HOPEFULLY they still have the damned donut this saturday! lol

              Anywho...I cheated and got on the scale this morning and lost another 1.3 lbs! WOO HOOO!! It's not official until friday though, so we'll see what happens.

              So I'm a little worried about this high gi/gl day. I'm not sure what I'm gonna eat seeing as you can't eat fat. Kathy - what are you eating on these days?!?

                OMG I would've been SO livid!!!

                I will tell you on my prescripton bottle what it says so you maybe could request it from your doctor in the future

                Also there's an over the counter cough syrup labeled "diabetic" (I think it's by Robitussin) and that is sugar free..

                  I know I haven't gotten to the High GI days but I have a plan for when I get there .. if you're interested
                  Also remember you can still eat the low GI carbs with each meal, you don't have to use high-gi carbs all the time...


                  Sample breakfasts:
                  Oatmeal + 2 egg whites
                  2 egg whites + banana
                  Fat Free cottage cheese (LOVE the daisy brand) + canned peaches in natural juice
                  Cheerios + 1/2 C skim milk (i'm counting the milk as a protein, despite the fact that it has a tiny amount of carbs)
                  2 egg whites + black beans (on low GI days, add some cheese.. YUM)

                  Sample Snacks
                  Fat Free Plain Greek Yogurt + banana
                  Fat Free Plain Greek Yogurt + blueberries + strawberries (1/2 portion of each)
                  Fat Free cottage cheese + canned peaches/no sugar added
                  Chicken Sausage + Cous Cous



                  Sample Lunch/Suppers
                  Broiled or Grilled Scallops + Brown rice + Spinach
                  Grilled Chicken + Sweet Potato + String Beans
                  Grilled Chicken + Garlicy New Potatoes + Snow Peas
                  Shrimp and Pasta tossed with fresh tomatoes, garlic, onions, and basil
                  Chicken and Pasta tossed with spinach, tomatoes, garlic, onions
                  "Burrito Bowls" - Chicken + black beans + onions + peppers + lettuce + salsa (on low-GI days, I add cheese)
                  Burrito - Chicken or Fish + onions + peppers + lettuce + salsa on a small whole wheat tortilla (I would even add a bit of fat free sour cream)
                  Chicken + peas + carrots
                  Chicken + cous cous + string beans

                  Sample Nightly Protein Shake
                  1 scoop vanilla protein + banana + ice + water
                  1 scoop vanilla protein + 1/4 c fat free plain greek yogurt + blueberries + ice + water

                  you get the idea :)

                  PS can you tell I LOVE to plan things?

                    Thank you everyone for the big congrats I am just so excited to be a mom it is going to be awesome! Makes me really want to loose that 15lbs now so I can keep up with him :0)

                    Lisa that is a funny but sad story about the doughnut your poor man! Hopefully they have them the next time.

                    Talk about dedication you got sugar free cough syrup! You are going to kick ass on this diet if you thought about that.

                      Lisaloo - lol aww your poor FI, that was a cute story though! lol Congrats on your loss so far!

                      I don't do high gi/gl day anymore because my body doesn't process carbs very well but when I tried it I'd have the following:

                      - Egg whites + fruit for breakfast
                      - Fruit for snack #1
                      - Chicken breast for lunch
                      - Protein shake for snack #2
                      - Chicken breast and corn for supper
                      - Pre-bed time shake

                      I really personally don't care for hi gi/gl days. I'm trying the "camel hump" approach this week but I think I might switch back to all low carb next week.
